I press c-x c-e because I know this is just a distribution of Emacs and
that works

In DrRacket there's the "run" button

In Guile Studio I can't find it

Is the intended user of guile studio supposed to know about c-x c-e ?

No.

There is a context menu.  The splash screen on the right mentions 
it.

Ok

Thanks for clarifying

Gladly.

There used to be a button in the toolbar, but I removed it for two 
reasons:

+ it isn’t always applicable; I had it hooked to the Geiser mode, 
so it would jarringly disappear when a different buffer was 
selected.

+ the toolbar is really quite big and we already have a tab bar 
and a menu bar

I found the context menu to be a good compromise, but you are the 
second person to report confusion about it, so I’m willing to 
reconsider this.

Would you prefer a button in the toolbar that will always send the 
code from the main buffer to the REPL?

Personally, I would prefer a toolbar with a button in it, yes

The simple reason is that this solution would be similar to what
DrRacket has and has had for a long time

So guile studio could play the simililarity card

What would be really required, here, is a consideration of which
population guile studio is meant for and then an investigation with
such population

But I understand that that's not within reach

Some years ago I was enabled to work on a little project in Clojure
thanks to a thing called "Emacs Live"

It's here
http://overtone.github.io/emacs-live/

it's a .emacs.d folder that you replace your one with

and it gives you a complete environement, based on Emacs, to work with
Clojure

With REPL, autocompletion and all the features of a modern IDE (we
should discuss what "modern" mean because the Smalltalk IDE was way
more modern than many IDEs for java these days)

So this idea of a distribution of Emacs taylored to introduce people to
Guile is a good idea

Kudos
